J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings features characters of various evil natures. Some characters are beings who commit sins of a spiritual nature, while others, like Gollum, commit acts of sin related to the flesh. This paper examines the type of evil Gollum represents, how it affects others, and whether or not he can change.
